    No. Very few were imported between the 92 Combat, Stock, Steel I, and Billenium models. I don't believe a frame mounted safety model has been offered in over a decade. These are rare pistols. For that reason alone I am interested in acquiring a 92X.

    3. plentiful mags
    4. excellent reliability
    5. presumably very soft shooting
    6. night sights

    what say you Beretta?
    The 92X appears most closely related to the Steel I, which had a steel Vertec style frame. Arguably the 92 Stock (which was produced with a standard aluminum frame) would be the better base gun for a "92Tac" (probably sans the barrel bushing).

    I think much like how the Wilson Combat Brigadier Tactical 92G demonstrated to Beretta that there was a market for updated 92 configurations, Beretta will watch 92X sales to see if additional frame mounted safety models are merited.

    The Centennial was another offered several years back. Also rare and pricey.

    Oh, good pull. Always forget that one. About 500 imported. And produced in 2015.

    I'm sure someone shot one, but I imagine these largely sit in walnut presentation cases...
